..A Tribute of Love".
Rehoboth community was shocked
to hear of the tragic and deplorable
death of little Sallie, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Galbreath,
which occurred Tuesday evening,
Bright and happy the children
were playing in the hall, a loaded
shot-gun which was in corner fell
and discharged, the load entering
The little form was laid to rest
in Rehoboth Cemetery Wednesday
We deeply sympathize with the
family in this sad bereavement.
Sallie was a bright little sunbeam
and loved to attend Sunday School.
Though not quite six years old, of
ten asked her mother questions of
God and Heaven, of Angels and
An Angel plucked the beautiful
little rose-bud,? ere it was blighted
by the chilling winds of sin, suffer
ing and sorrows of this life.
Her little place is vacant, the
little voice is still, yet how consoling.
"There is no death, an Angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread;
He bears our best loved ones away;
And then we call them "dead".
He leaves our hearts all desolate;
He plucks our fairest sweetest flowers,.
Transplanted into ?bliss, they now
Adorn immortal bower.
Where'er he sees a smile too bright
Or heart-too pure for taint and vice,
He bears it to that world of light,
To dwell in Paradise."

Letter From Young Edgefield
Columbia, S. C., Deo. 10, 1917. !
I received your letter today and
also the box. Believe me that meat
was sure good. I had the box for ,
dinner. Sergeant Hazy ate with me.
He said tell you all it was sure fine. ^
I looked for you down here Sun
day. Wrote you a letter first of
last week telling you the Camp not
quarantined and to come on. If
you want to ? come next Sunday, it
will be all right. Only one or two
companies are quarantined, so we i
can go where we please the s ime as ;
I am doing fine. We have good |
fires and plenty of cover. I sleep |
well at night and since our removal
to our own barracks we have a ,
much better time.
Don't worry about me. I am all
right, and if I get sick I will certain
ly let you know, I hope I can come
home Christmas if I am still in
Columbia. The way they iaiK now,
we don't know, how long we will be
here, but I dou't suppose they know
much more aboutit here than we do.
I am taking it all for the best. If
we have to go, we will have to go.
That is all. That is the way I look
Twenty of the boys left the 323rd
Regiment yesterday for France.
Some of the people were over here
to see them leave. I was certainly
sorry for them. They were going
to do some special duty in France.
Our time will come after a while,
I gness. If I have to go, I am go
ing like a mau. I may never iret
back, but I will have done my d*uty
and that is all I can d^.
I suppose I will have to stop. 1
could write all night. If you are
coming Sunday, be sure and let me
know and how you will come. If on
the train, I will meet you at the
station. Bring Marie and Mattie
Sue with you, if they can come.
Tell O'Dell to write to me, and tell
me how he is getting on at school.
Love to all.

"I was just.about ready to give np
my "beat"-I did not see how I
could possibly stay on the job", said
J. H. McGahee, one of Atlanta's best

I weighed 220 pounds at that time.
I suffered first from indigestion, and
it went from bad to worse until I
was simply down and out. Nothing

prominent physicians treated, but
their treatment failed to bring me

"Why, Dick Johnson told me
about the wonderful results he had
gotten from it, and believe me, I
will always feel very grateful to Mr.
"I have gained in actual weight
18 pounds, in the four weeks I have
been taking Vitona. My blood is in
fine condition, I can eat anything I
want now with no bad results. I
can walk my beat all day and go

All that old worn out, exhausted
feeling is a thing of Jhe past.
Sleep? Well I guess BO. I dou't
believe anything short of an earth
quake would interfere with my sleep
and that is why I got up every
morning feeling so refreshed and so
eager for my day's work.

the greatest medicine on earth."
